How do they DO that?

It's still a mystery.
Have you ever made a mobius strip?
Well I knitted one for the first time.
I can see why people say it's addictive.
"Round and round she goes
and where she stops,
nobody knows."
That was certainly true for me,
but then I cast off my stitches
and I had my first mobeus cowl!
I suppose I could think about it,
and figure out all the twists and turns,
but I prefer to leave it a mystery.
The pattern is Bulky Mobius Cowl
by Haley Waxberg
and is free on ravelry.

Fuzzy Wuzzy

It's fuzzy.
It's green.
It's a fuzzy, green, bandana cowl.
I think that says it all.
Oh! and it's soft.
Very soft.
Which just goes to show,
there is always more to say...

The pattern is the Bandana Cowl,
and is free from Purl Soho.

This cowl is for the knitting group's charity sale.

Beanie Baby

You could say that I enjoyed
making these men's beanies
since I made three of them

I like their shape,
the pattern was simple,
and for the first time,
I could knit away
without constantly looking down.
I could even read sub-titles!

The pattern is Chunky Men's Beanie
by Jolly Nogin Knits
and is free on Ravelry.

These beanies are for
the knitting group's charity sale.
